Mecanoo’s ability to transform manifests in a surprising range of designs including the world-famous New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue, the futuristic theatre complex in Kaohsiung, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in Washington, DC and De Nederlandsche Bank in Amsterdam. Including texts and stories by the celebrated architecture critic Herbert Wright, stunning photography and inspiring illustrations, this publication provides a comprehensive portrait of one of the world’s most extraordinary architecture offices to date. Mecanoo brings over 40 years of poetry to architecture.
